BRIDGETON, N.J. — It has been almost one year since the coronavirus began wreaking havoc on businesses all over the world, including in New Jersey. To combat these issues, the New Jersey Business Action Center is offering the community support and resources to promote business recovery with a webinar on February 26.

Sponsored by the Cumberland Development Corp. and Cooperative Business Assistance Corporation, the webinar will include information regarding services and government run programs. Executive Director Melanie Willoughby will emphasize the business advocacy resources that are being offered by the state in the hour long webinar. Willoughby will also focus on the following topics that could help the community:

  • Financing options
  • Export opportunities and grants
  • Procurement process
  • Benefits of registering as a small business
  • Women/minority owned businesses
  • Veteran-owned businesses

The executive director is also planning on informing her audience on the ways that the center’s advocates can help businesses as they try to connect with government agencies to get permitting, licensing and other related issues. Willoughby will also present critical insights and details as to how to benefit New Jersey businesses. New Jersey businesses are receiving support in an abundantly necessary moment in history, so the Zoom webinar could help other businesses cash in on assistance that could be essential.
